Sexy Back

Sunday, February 23, 2014

{Dress: Elizabeth and James; Clutch: Clare Vivier;
Heels: Tania Spinelli (similar)}

I wore this dress a few weeks ago for a night of salsa infused birthday celebrations.  I'd never felt sexier or more assured in my womanness.  It's amazing what a well constructed piece of clothing can do for one's confidence.  It's transformative.  I strongly encourage every girl own at least one dress that makes them feel that no matter what they have going on in their life, they can conquer the world.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Swanky Soiree

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

{Dress & Gloves from Playclothes;
Necklace & Bracelet from Polkadots & Moonbeams; Heels: Gucci}

What do you wear when your dear friend throws a Mad Menesque birthday party?  Well, the swankiest of dresses, of course.   I pulled out all the stops - vintage jewelry, gloves and dress, but kept a bit modern with spiked heels.  Oh, how I wish gloves, though, were still de rigueur.  I adore the fashions from the 50s - the structure, the detailing, the unambivalent femininity and the covert sexiness - and love filling my closet with these unique dresses.  I always wonder about the history of a vintage dress, what different lives it has lived, and hope to add to its story.  I know these are pieces I will hold on to for a long time and not throw out after a handful of wears.
